Since he took over as director of the Residential Coaching Academy of Centre for Coaching & Career Planning the result has been positive. This year, twenty students coached there qualified the Prelims of the Civil Services Main Examination (2012) conducted on May 20.
Last year the University Grant Commission (UGC)-funded centre was in the news after seven students coached there qualified the Civil Services (Main) Examinations.
And once again the centre is inviting application for aspirants, providing scholarship to 20 per cent admitted students @ 2000/.
The last day for submission of the filled form is September 21, according to university official. The entrance test is to take place on September 30 at the Jamia Schools. Those interested can gather detailed information by calling 011-26985492, 26981717 (Extn.4272, 4274).
Md Shuja, who studied at the centre way back in 2000 and now a government employee in the NCR region, is happy with the turn of events. He said: “It is good to know that things have improved. Now more students are making it to Civil Services.”
The centre is fully air conditioned and aspirants are provided lodging facilities too. Under the guidance of Dr Rahman, aspirants get regular feedback so that they can keep on improving.
With a former IAS officer Najeeb Jung as vice chancellor of JMI a lot has changed. It has been reported that Jung takes personal interest in the centre and also guides students for mock interviews.
“Without Jung’s interest the centre would have not done so well. The VC takes a lot of interest and on and off interacts with aspirants,” said Dr Rahman.
Now all eyes are on the 2013 results.
